Continuation Pattern Held

The continuation pattern held together in the SPY with the help of a few good earnings and Mr. Powell (Fed Report). The TC200O Red/Green Trendicator has done a great job keeping us on the bullish side of the SPY. The SPY has been trending up, and on January 22, price pulled back, for the following six days price walked along the Green Dot trendline forming a continuation pattern. Yesterday the buyers/bulls broke out and closed above the recent highs. The next big warning area will be the start of $271.00. Above $271.00 also gets price action into the HRC Dotted Duece line and the 200-SMA moving averages. I am starting to see a few signs that the market is a bit stretched, moving higher into resistant levels and the T2122 chart in TC2000 flashing warning. As long as price action remains bullish, we will remain cautiously bullish. The chart below illustrates the Yellow downtrend line the bulls have beat, the yellow horizontal line pointing out more resistance and the Red/Green Trendicator bull trend. The short magenta line is pointing out the continuation pattern breakout. The most important information the next day or 2 is whether or not we get bullish follow through. Another piece of useful information to help navigate the market is that the DJ-30 is testing the $25,000 area and the 200-SMA, watch price action for clues to direction.

The CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX) closed back below the T-Line yesterday, below the Red/Green Trendicator showing lack of fear. Note price is testing the 200-SMA area which can always spark buying.

The Big Apple Reported

The big Apple (APPL) has reported, not as bad as thought; pre-market is up. Now we take a seat and patiently wait for the 2:00 pm bus. The FOMC decision Hawk or Dove will be out at 2:00 pm today, rate hikes, up or up more and when. Knowing this information could help the market get off its fanny and make a move one way or the other. Yesterday the SPY closed with another indecision Doji, the 5hth one in the past five days. “Think the market is waiting for something”? The chart patterns and price action remains bullish as price holds over the 50-SMA and slides sideways. The price action is trapped between a bearish downtrend line and the 200-SMA and a bullish uptrend line and the 50-SMA. Unfortunately, neither the buyers or sellers have had enough juice to move price up or down. So we patiently wait sitting along side the road for the bull or bear bus to show up. The CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX) closed above the T-Line yesterday, but the Red/Green Trendicator is still red on the daily chart. The VIX- would have to break out over the Trendicator to consider fear. There is plenty of reasons to remain concerned or even be sitting out of this market right now. I do remain cautiously bullish.

FOMC-Earnings Week Yikes

FOMC today and tomorrow, big earnings this week YIKES! I you ever heard me say “I don’t like earnings?” Well, I don’t. I have seen earnings kill trading accounts and set traders back months on their profit progress. And then on top of it all, we have the FOMC rate decision this week as well.
As you can see from the SPY chart below, price action is walking right into the right corner of the up and down trend lines. The bigger direction decision will likely show itself once the buyers or sellers push the price above the downtrend line or below the uptrend line. The last six candles have simply been consolidation above support and below resistance. For the bulls, the price has been trending above our Red/Green trend line, and the past seven candles have held above the $260.60 support line while at the same time the bears have held price in a tight range below the downtrend line. I suspect a big decision is coming soon. The CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX) closed once again below the T-Line and the Red/Green trend line. However, with a double bottom and a possible breakout of $21.95 would create a bullish chart pattern. There is plenty of reason to be concerned or even be sitting out of this market right now. I do remain cautiously bullish.

Big Earnings Week

Big week of earnings this week, double check your positions and new buys, do you want to hold them through earnings? The past few weeks have been very good to most traders, and last week was no exception. Last week the SPY was in chart pattern creation with Monday's pop and the next four days creating a PBO, continuation pattern. If you follow the Volatility stop, you can see five dot support line. Last week also remained above the T-Line and the 50-SMA. Above $260.60 January 23rd low we will remain bullish looking for the buyers to challenge the $271.00 area. When reading a chart, I find it is helpful to look at Price Action, Support, and Resistance, The T-Line and the Red/Green Trend/Line. The price action of the CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX) closed Friday below the T-Line and the Red/Green trend line. Friday’s close did not produce any bullish buyers of the VIX. However, the VIX is testing the 200-SMA once again so we may see some a relief rally this week.

15 Day T-Line Run

A close over the T-Line today would be the 15th-day price action has to lead the T-Line into bullish battle. Price has tightened up the last three days, the Doji yesterday is the smallest of the 3 and yesterdays low was higher then Wednesdays candle. The past three candles have also had slide into last weeks support area. This week the sellers have tried to push the buyers into a hole but have failed thus far, the buyers have hung on tight to the road traveled from the December lows. A strong bull will be wanting $266.50 followed by $270.50 a strong bear will want $258.60 followed by $255.65. The VIX-X price action has failed to close above the 50-SMA after a minor challenge. But the bottom building is possible and real.

Friday is a good day to collect a fw of those profits and take a few loss if needed. It’s kinda scary holding too much over the weekend with all the political BS and the unknown. Good trading to all and have a great weekend.

Buyers Holding Off Sellers

Buyers are holding off the sellers in this bullish pullback. The SPY printed another lower low yesterday, and then the buyers stepped over the sellers closing well above the low. The price action of the SPY is flirting with-testing the 50-SMA and the $258.60 support area, what I would call a bullish pullback. Here is why I think the bullish pullback is good for the overall market, let's look at the past five candles. The past five candles are drawing what could be a bullish continuation pattern, of course, it is based on the buyers holding support. If the bullish continuation pattern pans out the next target area would be about $270.50. And if the sellers walk all over the buyers $255.65 and $251.40 will be in the cards.

Notice how price action is trending above the T-Line and the Red/Green Dot trend in the chart below, we will remain cautiously bullish until we see a compelling bearish candlestick pattern with follow-through the breaks the bullish trend.
